Rain pushes back I-35W, I-94 closures

Monday's rain has delayed construction and pushed back scheduled closures on Interstate 35W. 

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says cews were unable to finish decking the 26th Street bridge over northbound I-35W on Monday night due to storms. To finish the project, northbound I-35W will be closed completely between Interstate 94 and Highway 62 from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday. 

As a result, other closures have been pushed back as well. Southbound I-35W will be closed completely between I-94 and Hwy. 62 from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday.

I-94 will be closed in both directions from 10 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday.
